        Authentic piano feel

        Yamahas GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) weighted action has heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano. Plus the matte finish of the black keys are less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.

        Tried and true, Yamahas classic sound engine for realistic tone

        AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling uses digital technology to record the sound of an acoustic piano. AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious sound by using pairs of waveforms (L and R) captured with two microphones. The P-45 uses AWM to play one sample per key at varying levels of volume and timbre.

        A compact and lightweight design makes it easy to get around

        Slim and stylish form with a depth of less than 12 inches, the P-45 requires little space. At only 25 lbs. with a built-in sound system, it can be easily moved anywhere in your home or even used for performance outside.

        Simple, single-button operation

        Various P-45 settings can be changed with a single button. Hold down the "GRAND PIANO/FUNCTION" button and press the keyboard to change Voices, play demo sources, configure the metronome and more.

        The P45 is definitely a serious contender for the best value piano on the market for 2015. The key action is extremely responsive with a perfect balance between not being too heavy or lightweight; perfect for beginners and higher level players alike. The main Grand Piano sample is warm and full-bodied - not as zingy at the top end as some might hope, but hard to fault when you consider the low price. Through its own modest speaker system the sound is satisfactory for playing at home. There is a stereo jack output on the back so you can always boost the volume through an external speaker, or put on headphones on to hear the pure sound of the instrument.

        The extras include a built in metronome and a handful of other useful voices; organ, harpsichord, vibes, and strings. It is also possible to adjust the touch sensitivity for those who prefer a softer or harder response. The note polyphony technology is excellent - it's possible to run up and down the keys with full sustain and not detect any 'drops' in notes as you hit the limit. The bonus of a USB-midi connection will satisfy those longing for a good weighted key MIDI controller keyboard. There is a sustain pedal included and the added phones/output jack means that you could comfortably gig live with it as well.

        In all, this is a high-quality versatile instrument; very lightweight and compact enough to fit easily into a standard 'slimline' bag or case (we recommend the Roksak RSKB-88-SLIM - call for details). Though not as rugged in construction as a dedicated stage piano, it's still excellent for use in a live or rehearsal situation.
